While at my Mom's, I tell her and my step-dad that when I get home from their place that I have to finish my nephew's cake, and a smaller birthday I decided to make for my brother as his birthday is coming up as well and thought I could have both cakes ready for pick-up tomorrow. Ahhhh....nope. My step-dad tells me that he thinks it's next week they're having the get together for my nephew's birthday (this is when my brother and his partner are meeting my nephew's girlfriend's parents for the first time). My heart about dropped thinking of a cake sitting in my fridge patiently waiting for me to come home to cover it in fondant.
So my step-dad calls my brother to confirm. No answer. As he's calling, I double check my text message to see if maybe I got the date wrong. Nope. I'm right. Then my step-dad calls my brother's partner to confirm the date. While he's talking to him, I heard my step-dad telling him I got the date wrong! I tell him NO...my brother got the date wrong. Again, my heart sunk. I'm sitting there thinking a cake to feed at least 30 is going to go to waste, that, or my husband and I are going to be eating cake morning, noon, and night. Then I realize I do have another cake due on Saturday. I can use this cake after all since the flavors are going to be the same...just the shape is different. The one I made my brother is round, the one for Saturday was going to be square.
Since the lady that ordered Saturday's cake just asked that it had a baseball theme, I can still use it, it just doesn't fit into my design! Now back to the drawing board to make her cake work with decorations I made for the square, and (smaller cake)! Plus, she'll be getting about double the cake she ordered!! Surprise lady!!! She's a friend, so I'll just explain it to her why she's getting so much more cake! Her son is 7...I'm sure he'll be fine with eating cake all week! Better him than me! All in all, it worked itself out. Just really frustrating!
